How To Make Our Homemade Ground Beef Crunchwrap Supreme:
Begin by placing your large skillet on the oven over medium heat.
Then add inthe ground beef, taco seasoning, and diced onion and begin to brown the meat until it is no longer pink and the onions are translucent. This should take about 5-7 minutes or so.
When the meat is done, drain the grease from the pan and then set the meat aside.
Now take 4 of the large tortillas and place a tostada shell on top to use it like a stencil.
Place the tostada in the center or the tortilla shell and cut out 4 smaller flour tortilla circles that are the size of the tostada.
After they are cut, place the cut tortilla shells in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to make them soft and pliable.
Now to build the crunchwrap, place a scoop of the cooked ground beef in the center of the remaining large (uncut) tortilla shells.
Be sure to leave room on the side becuase they will need to fold over to make the sides.
Then top the ground beef with cheese sauce and place the crunchy tostada shell on top.
Next you need to spread the sour cream on the shell and then add your favorite toppings. We used lettuce, diced tomatoes, and shredded cheese for ours.
After you have added all of your toppings, place the small tortilla you cut on top of the stack.
Now you need to start at the top of the larger tortilla on the bottom and fold it up to the center of the top smaller tortilla.
Try to make the folds tight, but not too tight that it rips the tortilla.
Continue to work your way around the whole tortilla until all of the edges have been folded up, they will look like pleats just like the original crunchwrap.
When the whole tortilla is folded, quickly and carefully flip it over and set it down so that it will hold the pleats.
Now, wipe the skillet clean that you used for the meat and then heat the skillet up over medium heat.
Once the skillet is warm, spray it with nonstick cooking spray and then place the crunchwrap with the pleat side down in the pan.
Let it cook for 2-3 minutes or until the outside of the tortilla is golden, then flip it over and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Continue to cook each crunchwrap this way, reapplying the nonstick cooking spray inbetween each crunchwrap.
When they are ready, serve the crunchwrap supreme with your favorite sides or dipping sauces and enjoy!
